My opinion of this excellent book 22 Dec. 2014
By M J HORSNELL - Published on
Format: Paperback
Adventure in Human Knowledges and Beliefs is an attempt to bridge between a strictly academic book and a book which is also accessible to a wider readership of teenagers and adults. However, the book may in fact be ideally suited to an undergraduate course (or graduate seminary course) dealing with the intersections of philosophy of science, religious studies, and theology. While the book does provide introductions to pertinent topics and scholars in the field of "science and religion," the amount of material contained in the 106 pages suggests readers might appreciate the book better while studying its content in a classroom with a teacher or professor. This is not to say university/college-bound teenagers and other professionals should close the book and put it away. On the contrary, what is unique about this book is that each reader (from any background) decides which arguments, topics, and philosophical and theological tools are most useful to him or her. A lot of books about philosophy or theology present a single thesis, which the author argues for. At the end of those books, the reader is left to ultimately accept or discard the author's initial thesis. Not so with Adventure in Human Knowledges and Beliefs. In this book Woodward doesn't argue for a single thesis per se but rather he engages readers in a mutual conversation about how we all might adjudicate ("measure") our knowledges and beliefs—and, in the end, leaves those important decisions up to each of us.
